Featuring Kelly Purkey │ December Release

In all the craziness of sharing December Daily® pages I never shared what I made using Kelly Purkey's December release. Well I guess I shared one that was in my December Daily® but I didn't share the other.

After Christmas I was still in denial that a brand new year was approaching so I decided to play a bit in my planner hoping that dressing up my January calendar might help get me excited for a new year.

I don't think I've ever loved a number stamp set as much as this one. I have major heart eyes for the Day One kit this month and seriously could not stop using the stamp set as you will see below. I added the year to the blank space on my planner and used the solid circle stamp to add some additional silver spots. I love how this looks like sequins, how very New Year's Eve of me.

I paired the Day One stamps with stamps from the Fight On and the Workday stamp sets. These two sets are great for planners and even though I don't work outside of the home the Workday stamp set is a really good set for motivational purposes too. I really loved the orange color of some of the cards that Kelly added to the kit this year and used them for a very personal project that I'll share down below.

My other project was one I have already shared with my December Daily® pages but its worth another look here because even though its the same Day One stamp set, it looks so different when used to create a background like I did here.

I really love how the months fit into the spaces left for the circles. Such a fun and creative way to make a date in your planner or in your pocket page spreads this coming year.

One of the projects I really wanted to do last year was a personal pocket page album, just for me and really just all about me. I never got started on it so I vowed to make it happen this year. The idea of working on a mini over the course of a year has me pretty excited. I put some of my favorite Day One kit cards to use on the title page for my album as you will see below.

Orange is one of my many favorite colors and I had fun digging thru my stash of goodies to find items that would complement that color and help set a tone for my project. My plan is to share pages from it as I feel comfortable. I don't usually hold back on sharing my work but in case this ends up being on the deeply personal side I may hold some back. I'll just go with the flow and see what it ends up shaping up as.

I hope you enjoyed Kelly's release as much as I did, she added two new alpha stamps sets to the shop, the Charles.

And also the Lafayette.

I think the Lafayette alpha set is the perfect partner for the Potterhead stamp set which she did bring back and its still available if you missed it last month.

I cannot wait to get making in 2017 so I'm sure I'll be back with more to share very soon.

Take care,
